  • About: I have tried juicing in the past and loved it! I know it is the best thing we can do for our bodies.....my problem is staying away from the processed foods after the Reboot has finished. I know when I stay away from these foods my body doesn't hurt nearly as much...I'm guessing tons of arthritis. I already had one knee replacement and surely don't want to rush into another!
  • Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: I joined Reboot with Joe to detox from sugars and highly processed foods and overall gain my health back. I hope to feel better, have more energy and of course loose some weight. I am hoping with the support in the Reboot community I will find the strength to continue juicing and eating healthy for the long haul. We only get one go around on earth and I want to make the best of it :)

    Hi Linda,

    This is my first time on a reboot, eating vegetables has never been my thing and having been a big guy all my life (and dieted throughout) I have always given in to the temptation of fast food and eating to excess as a norm of life, I suddenly realised however that I really had two choices, either to do something drastic (am I'm sure you'll agree with me that this plan is), or accept that my life would be drastically impacted now and somewhat reduced.

    I was introduced to this plan by my son who simply suggested I watched the film as his girlfriend had found it helpful in her own fight to combat her medical condition. With no pressure exerted, I found myself so interested that I suddenly enrolled jumped in feet first. Of course I find it hard as I love all the old foods and that way of life, but with a weight loss of 5.5 lbs at the start of day four and a glow now on day six, my motivation is that I will be able to wain to temptation for the next 24 days and make the changes required in the future, by sticking to a more vegetable and fruit balanced plan going forward, whilst giving in to temptation from time to time, so I can live the dream whilst extending my life.

    The reality is that I'm on my second marriage and live in a house with two step kids who are lucky to be able to eat what the like and lots of it, and believe me every day watching them do that whilst they joke of my now horselike existence is really hard, so I take my hat off to all those like you in the same boat and say well done to you for taking this huge commitment on, it not easy and never will be. I keep my motivation up by now believing in myself and that I now cannot fail those around me by giving up, and that what I'm doing will hopefully make them see in the future that they too need to balance their eating habits too and accept that my past habits were not good ones.

    I really wish you and all the other rebooter's all the best both on this plan and on beating your demons, unfortunately I have accepted that this plan is the only way forward, I hope you can too.

    Good luck; take care and stay safe to you all.

    Doug.
